A/n: Well this story is the winner. In the story some of the sentences that Liz speaks she makes it short or says words wrong. I was trying to make it sound like a 2 year old.

Well as you know I Stacy Hardy-Hyson is 18 and my daughter Liz Spike Hyson is 2. Spike and I are doing just fine or at least that's what Spike thinks. The thing is Spike is gone all the time for the WWE and I am at home all the time with Liz. The pressure is too great. I started drinking again and I can't stop. Liz has caught me a few time and I told her I was taking some cough medicine. I feel like a real bitch. First I am drinking and then I am lying. I am lying to my daughter and to you. I am really drinking because I'm scared. I'm scared to death. I went to my doctor and he said I have breast cancer. I have to go into surgery to have it taken out and then I go into Chemotherapy. It's too much for me to handle. I know I should tell my family and Spike, but I just don't want them to hurt no more.

My thoughts were interrupted by a knock at the door. I went to answer it and it was Matt and Jeff. They had off this week.

"Hey sis." Matt said.

"Hey." I said with a fake smile.

They knew something was wrong and they were going to find out what it was. I let them come in. I gave them both hug.

"Uncle Jeffy and Uncle Matty." Squealed Liz as she ran at them.

"Lizzy" Jeff said happily as he picked her up and held her.

"How you doing rug rat?" Matt asked.

"Me want drink," Liz pouted.

"Come on let's get you some apple juice." Matt smiled as he took her and went into the kitchen.

Jeff and I sat down and he just stared at me.

"What?" I asked.

"Something is up and I wanna know what's going on."

"Nothing is going on Jeff." I lied.

"You're lying to me Stacy and you know I don't like that."

"I'm not lying Jeff. Why would I lie?"

"To hide something."

"I'm not hiding anything"

~~~~Meanwhile in the kitchen~~~~

"Uncle Matty?"

"Yea sweetie?" Matt said as he handed her apple juice.

"Why mommy take cough stuff all the time?"

"What cough stuff baby?"

"In da cupboard." Liz pointed out.

"This one?" Matt said as he pointed to the top cupboard.

Liz nodded and Matt opened it up and saw only one thing in it. It was a bottle of Vodka. Matt picked it up and looked at it. He ran his hand through his hair.

"Uncle Matty sad?" Liz asked.

"Yea kiddo Uncle Matty sad."


"It's nothing for you to worry about." Matt smiled. "Can you do Uncle Matty a favor?"


"Can you go and play in your room while Uncle Matty and Uncle Jeffy talk to you mom?"

Liz nodded and went to her room. After hearing the door shut he walked into the living room with an angry face.


"You're drinking again?" Jeff asked

"I'm not drinking!"

"LIZ TOLD ME YOU HAVE BEEN DRINKING THIS" Matt yelled as he showed her the vodka bottle.

I looked down in shame and said, "I'm sorry."

"Why Stacy? Why drink again?" Jeff asked sitting next to me and holding my hand.

"I guess I have to tell you the truth don't I?"

"Yea you do" Matt said.

"I'm drinking because I am afraid."

"Of what babygurl?" Jeff asked.

"Of dying."

"Why would you be afraid of dying?" Matt asked.

The angry was all out of Matt as he kneeled in front of me.

"I went to the doctor and she said...she said I have breast cancer." I said as tears ran down my face.

"What?" Jeff and Matt said in shock.

"I have to go into surgery tomorrow and then I start Chemotherapy."

They both held me. When we were done holding each other and crying Matt looked sternly at me.

"We'll be there for you the whole time, but no more drinking you got that!"

I nodded and said, "I'm scared though. I don't wanna die."

"Mommy going to die?" Liz said.

We all turned to see Liz standing in the living room.

"Come here sweetie" Jeff said.

Liz ran into his arms.

"Your mommy is not going to die. I promise you that and you know Uncle Jeff always keeps his promises right?"

Liz nodded. Jeff smiled and kissed Liz's forehead. Liz giggled and then held her arms out to Matt.

"Uncle Matty too."

We laughed as Matt took her and also gave her a kiss on her forehead. Liz then crawled into my lap and I held her.

"Mommy loves you." I said.

"I wuv you too mommy."

The phone than rang and Jeff went to answer it.

"Hello?" Jeff answered
